The Authors, Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould, will discuss their new book, Invisible History: Afghanistan's Untold Story, published by City Lights Books

Despite declarations made by some in power, the war in Afghanistan is far from over — in fact, the turbulence is escalating. Seven years after 9/11, the Taliban continue to regroup, attack, and claim influence over most of the region.

Invisible History presents a fresh, comprehensive analysis of Afghanistan's political history that begins at the roots of tribal leadership and ultimately emphasizes our current political moment and the impact of ongoing U.S. military intervention. Fitzgerald and Gould tell the real story of how the U.S. came to be in Afghanistan and what we can expect next.

Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould, a husband and wife team, began their experience in Afghanistan in 1981 for CBS News and produced a documentary, Afghanistan Between Three Worlds, for PBS. In 1983 they returned for ABC Nightline and contributed to the MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour. They have continued to research, write and lecture about Afghanistan history and U.S. foreign policy since.

Praise for Invisible History:

"A serious, sobering study, Invisible History illuminates a critical point of view rarely discussed by our media. The results of this willful ignorance have been disastrous to our national well-being."
–Oliver Stone
